Well, all was going ok ish, although the kids, Jazz & Tyler got stuck in the sinking mud before we even got in the boat. It all went wrong as we returned,the tide was coming in really fast and we grounded out, so Pat being Pat Smith, jumped in to tow us safely to the launch slope. He was fully clothed and up to his waist in mud. We found this rather funny.. What a mistake that was, in the chaos that then followed,whilst trying to help get the boat out the water, I fell off the launch jetty and then Tyler face planted the mud while trying to retrieve the most important item off the boat (Jasmine's phone). We then attempted to look rather dignified as we strolled past the pub full of boaty peeps, wet and covered in mud.
On the up-side, as several boaty chaps passed us, they said, "don't worry, it's happened to us all".. I wonder if they witnessed the whole 'Carry-on-Boating' episode..
